    The ******s, how does a boundary of 82% for an A justify a paper that difficult... But I'm not too cross with MEI as C3, C4, FP2, FP3, S3 and S4 are lovely.

    Got a U (38) on this and had an E (43) last year, despite getting 100 in C4, S4 and FP2...

    FP1 just really doesn't agree with me!!

    I got 43/72 and should be at least a C! That was the hardest FP1 paper ever, even harder than the January 2013 paper (48 for an A). Bull. I'm in year 12 and resitting it next year.

    Don't worry. I got a U in FP1 last year (Year 12). I retook it this year and got 98. next year you'll kick yourself as to how easy FP1 is when you've done FP2.

    Lol After all I got 88, which is not that bad considering how difficult the paper was.

    I know this is an old thread, but I just did this paper as a mock and I really didn't get one of the questions.
    I believe it was question (7)(iv):
    "Write down the roots of the equation f(w/j)."
    There was no reference to any equation involving w in the rest of section B. I just wanted to check what it was actually looking for.

    Thanks!

    OCR MEI FP1 Thread - AM 20th May 2016

    I didn't see any other 2016 threads for this module, please let me know if one is already established!

    Timetable (skip to page 9)

    ---

    Also, I've written an Enhanced Examination Paper for this module, specifically including MEI questions to help you all

    It is meant to be a significantly more challenging examination of general concepts specified by different boards. It is fully doable for students with knowledge of standard FP1, C1, and C2 material.

    Being able to make a good start on all of the questions is a good indicator that you are on track to a strong A in this module.

    https://www.furthermathstutor.co.uk/fp1_enhanced.pdf

    Let me know if you have any questions on the paper.
    I know this is a really old thread but I did this paper as a mock. Could anyone PLEASE help me with that last question, if you even remember it. As far as I remember it was:

    45/(39*41*43) + 46/(40*42*44) + 47/(41*43*45) + ... + 105/(99*101*103)
    with NO formula whatsoever.

    The reason I can't do it is because I've only been taught how to do method of differences when there is a given formula, but what I wrote above was the entire question.
    I get my mock back tomorrow before it gets marked, so I still have a chance to do it right. I asked my friends who sat this paper as well as the TSR Maths forum and everyone said it can't be done.
